Storyline

Arthur Goldman is a rich Jewish industrialist, living in luxury in a Manhattan high-rise. He banters with his assistant Charlie, often shocking Charlie with his outrageousness and irreverence about aspects of Jewish life. Nonetheless, Charlie is astonished when, one day, Israeli secret agents burst in and arrest Goldman for being not a Jewish businessman but a Nazi war criminal. Whisked to Israel for trial, Goldman forces his accusers to face not only his presumed guilt--but their own. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

It's out now!

The Man in The Glass Booth has finally been delivered to the home theater in the form of a DVD released by Kino as part of their series on The American Film Theater. The DVD hits the street on Tuesday, July 22.

I have managed to catch a glimpse of this disk and the picture quality is quite good considering it is a non-restored film from 1975. No need to go into how great this flick is as it's been well documented over time.
